Sad Farewell

Members of EDAG gathered with family and friends to remember and celebrate the life of Mabel Mckechnie, one of our longest standing members. She had been a very talented artist and a friend of many in the group. She will be sadly missed.

Peoples Choice

”Homeward Bound”, by Chris Woodthorpe was the winning painting in the Peoples Choice competition

New Term

We start our new term tomorrow (Thursday August 29th) and hope everyone is full of ideas and inspiration after the summer break. The exhibition is seven weeks away; lots of time for new projects, but the weeks will fly by. We are looking forward to another term of creativity and friendship.

Summer break

We had our last art session this week: no more Thursday art group meetings until we resume on August 29th. We do, however, have a summer outing, a trip to Pitmedden Gardens on July 18th, when everyone will have a chance to socialise (not that we don’t do that in our art sessions), enjoy the beautiful gardens, and tea room, and, maybe, do some sketching. We are really hoping for some new members, so, anyone who thinks they might like to have a go at painting, sketching, or other crafts, please come along next term and see what we are about. Happy Holidays!

 

 

Summer term – new projects

Summer term projects are under way now and the pressure is off because of the new, later date set for the exhibition. We have lots of time to get inspired by the vibrant summer colours around us in this beautiful corner of the world. The S3 Academy pupils have had their art work judged : the winning entry was flowers by Isla Carson
